Yarn Bombed Tram - Bendigo

Tram #302
 One of the things that Bendigo is famous for is its Vintage Talking Tram tours.  During the 2014 Australian Wool & Sheep Show (which was held back in July), Bendigo tram number #302 was beautifully yarn bombed by a guerrilla craft group. The tram was covered in hand-made crochet inside and out with bunting and blankets dominating the decor.
The crew and conductors decided to keep the moving masterpiece for a number of weeks to showcase the craftsmanship that has been installed on it and the tram could be seen moving around the tracks in Bendigo. 
To be honest I am not sure if it is still in service, but I recently discovered it parked out the front of the Central Deborah Gold Mine, so naturally I jumped aboard with my trusty iPhone and snapped a few pics of this gorgeous work of art so that I could share them with you.

Personally I believe that there should be more yarn bombing throughout the world!
"Yarn Bombing" - a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
